Burger King dresses as ghost of McDonald's

The fast food chain decided to have a dig at its rival as part of its celebration of Halloween this year.
Draped in thin white sheets billowing in the early morning breeze, this branch of Burger King in Queens, New York might have appeared to be closed for construction work if it hadn't been for a large pair of red eyes peering out from underneath the familiar yellow arch of the McDonald's logo.

As it turns out, the restaurant has in fact 'dressed up' in time for Halloween as the ghost of its biggest rival - a tongue-in-cheek reference which has proven to be quite a hit online.
"BOOOOO! Just kidding," the sign reads. "We still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween."

McDonald's spokeswoman Terri Hickey however wasted no time in turning the jape around.

"Who wouldn't want to masquerade as McDonald's for Halloween when we are serving up treats like McCafe beverages, apple pies, and our World Famous Fries," she said.

Seems like Burger King is promoting Mcdonalds

Although it does advertise McDonald's it also advertises Burger King. And I actually I think Burger King wins out over McDonald's because they're being playful and fun. I mean, dressing up an entire building as a ghost is just ridiculously fun and funny. If I were driving down the street in search of fast food I'd probably pull in the that Burger King and enjoy the fun. Unfortunately, fast food is becoming ridiculously expensive now with labor and minimum wage laws the way they are. I try to avoid them now and save my money when possible.

I'm pretty sure Burger King and McDonalds are owned by the same mega conglomerate. Pretty sure each are designed to be better at things than the other. Burger King do the better burgers, McDonalds do the better chips. Burger king does sides. McDonalds do McFluffies. So it works out in the end, for both sides, as it's the same one.

Yes, BG still flame broils their burgers, then put them in a warmer for the rush hours. Also being the Ghost of a clown might be safer right now than being dressed as a live clown right now,
